Which is faster UltraDMA(33) or DMA (normal)
Hi there, i've been growing in concern at how slow both my DVD drives are at reading files. They barely read above 1Mb/s..... i checked on the forum and have enabled DMA as requested. There were a number of options in the DMA manager of YAST (am runnign suse 10) , i chose UltraDMA/33. The speed seems to be the same even after rebooting as advised. Can anyone tell me (without me having to reboot 6 times to check all possible combinations) which theyve found best to work with their DVD-RW (i have a BENQ DVD-RW drive capable of X16 dvd burning) and DVDROM/CDRW (i have an NEC which should read DVDROMS at X8). I'm gonna try DMA (normal) and see if it is any better.
thanks in advance
